Taking home the Super Stock Championship crown for 2012, Ben Wandahsega continues to impress racing at 3 Fires Off-Road Park and other events within the U.P. Mud Drag Association. The ’12 Silverado bodied, ’78 Blazer chassis is powered by a 410c.i. 730hp motor, ATD Turbo 400 tranny, and 205 Kodiac t-case. Built Dana 44/12-Bolt axles running 4.56 Motive Gears with Ten Factory chromoly shafts put the power to the ground and a set of 4” BDS leaf springs and Fox Racing shocks allow clearance for 38” Boggers to clear the Boatec fiberglass body. Congrats Ben and for more info on the racing series, check out U.P. Mud Drag Association.
You may have seen photos of this rig from some of the events we attended over the last year. The chromed out BDS 4-link system seems to catch our attention each time we head to truck shows on the east coast. Out of Oxford, New Jersey, Doug Drukker has built this rig from the frame up paying plenty of attention to the details along the way. Among the long list of interior, exterior, and performance mods, this rig sports a chrome plated BDS 8” 4-link suspension lift, BDS dual shock hoop with Fox 2.0 shocks at each corner, and a chrome plated dual 9500 steering stabilizer rolling around on 38×15.50 Toyo M/Ts and 20×10 Fuel Hostages. Great build Doug and thanks for the photos!
Team Desert Concepts has been competing all year in Ultra 4 races around the country. Last month the team headed to the Glen Haven Grand Prix for a great weekend of racing. Check out some of the photos of the #4454 in action out on the track (photos compliments of David Taylor) and to see the rest check out the link. To follow the team and their progress throughout the season, check out their Facebook page and Ultra 4′s website.
Check out the 900+ hp BDS equipped Duramax in the pages of Diesel Power this month. This ’08 GMC Sierra 2500HD owned by Nils MacArthur is sporting a laundry list and a half worth of custom parts and bolt on accessories. Suspension comes in he form of a BDS 6″ lift kit (pre-high clearance no torsion bar drop kit), BDS SS skid plate, and BDS traction bars. The rig is primarily used up in the oil field of Alberta, Canada and is one bad ass ride for sure. Read the full feature on this truck in the Aug.’12 issue of Diesel Power Magazine on newsstands now.
We leaked this photo a couple weeks back, and tonight’s the night to see how it came to be. Check out Offroad Overhaul tonight on the Outdoor Channel to see Markus Voegler’s 2008 Dodge Ram 2500 Powerwagon get an off-road makeover before hitting the trails. BDS jumped on board with a 4” long arm suspension lift kit (comparable to a 6” long arm for standard 2500) while others provided wheels, tires, lights, and more. See the buildup and all the action tonight on Offroad Overhaul on the Outdoor Channel! To see Markus’s Testimonial, check out the link.
